GSO Test


Our nursery is linked to the school and welcomes children from age 3.

We offer three full days from 8.40 am - 3.05 pm.

We currently have 30 spaces each day or session and a qualified teacher, a nursery nurse and a teaching assistant staff this.  Our Early Years Family Support Worker and our speech therapy team also support it.

We offer 30 hours of childcare.  Please ask the office for more details. During each session, children have access to milk and fruit.  The children are provided with a wide range of fun activities to help them develop as learners.  

Child-initiated learning helps children to develop in each of the areas of development outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and is linked to each child’s age and stage of development.

The curriculum for the early years now consists of 3 prime areas. These areas cover the knowledge and skills which build the foundations for children’s school readiness and future progress. These are applied and reinforced by 4 more specific areas of development.


  • Communication and language: development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment, develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
  • Physical development: this involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive. It helps to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.
  • Personal, social and emotional development: this involves helping children to develop a positive sense of both themselves and others around them. It helps them to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.


  • Literacy: development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters, helping them begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to help ignite their interest.
  • Mathematics: this involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems and to help them describe shapes, spaces and measures.
  • Understanding the world: this involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community by providing opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
  • Expressive arts and design: this involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play and design and technology.
